Ashley from rock-it promotions says…
Everyone loves a good deal. If you’re ever online, you’ve probably noticed ads, blog posts and news articles about the online group-buying explosion. With lots of daily deal sites to choose from, we’re focusing on Canada’s trend-leading, group-buying phenom, TeamBuy.ca.
TeamBuy.ca is an amazing group-buying site and city guide founded, built and managed by young Canadian entrepreneurs (and pals) Edward Yao, Andrew Hutchings and Ghassan Halazon. ??The site offers up a daily deal of 50 to 90 per cent off at hundreds of restaurants, events, spas, yoga, theatre, and more in your city. A daily deal is delivered to your inbox each morning to give direct access to the deal and if enough people sign up for the deal, everyone benefits from the mega discounts!
TeamBuy.ca is live in Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and Montreal, and will launch soon in Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and other cities across Canada.
They’ve offered up great deals like $10 for a $20-gift card to Z-Teca Gourmet Burritos (more than 1,400 Torontonians scooped this one up), $40 for a $67 wine tasting experience at Crush on Niagara wine tours, and $20 for a $57 hot bedrock bathing and yoga session at Iyashi Spa (purchased by 596 Torontonians). These are *seriously* good deals.
Vanessa from 18Karat says…
Over the summer our shop has been stocking up on beautiful and unusual jewellery pieces made by local artists. From the fun and vibrant coconut shell earrings by Lara Bazant, the Turkish inspired mosaic and cameo pieces by Murat Tunc, and the hand forged stainless steel and gold necklaces by Meredith Robb – all pieces are hand-made in Toronto. These designers are unstoppable – new pieces arrive weekly! And when we are not busy showcasing local artists and hosting juried shows, 18Karat is still imagining, designing, and creating beautiful custom jewellery.
Paige from Bicyclette says…
I am pleased to announce that Bicyclette Boutique has officially launched! On August 11, the “doors” to the online store were opened, showcasing a finely curated assortment of pieces, from brands such as Wildfox Couture, Seneca Rising, Dolce Vita, Trash & Luxury, Central Park West, Soos Rocks and Oh Dina. Selected summer merchandise is now on sale, and fall is beginning to trickle in, including the addition of Biko, Mink Pink, Funktional, Splendid, and James Jeans to the roster. Lots of exciting things to come from the Bicyclette studio.
